11:32am
he was close at that time. he has been a senator all of these years and now going to be the secretary of state. i don't think there is any doubt they will confirm him and he will go smoothly. >> you said relatively smoothly. you think the confirmation is expected? >> yes, the confirmation is expected. it will be overwhelming and a handful who vote against him if that, but he will be different next week when chuck hagel is the nominee for the defense secretary. that will be a lot more brutal as far as the q&a given his controversial positions. i suspect that hagel will be confirmed as well. >> let's talk about the two key personnel moves we are awaiting the announcement of at the white house about to come from the white house. tell us about that. >> mary jo white in new york spent years as the u.s. attorney and she is very, very tough. the president is going to

we are standing by at the white house. the white house expected to make two key staff announcements coming up shortly from the president and as soon as that happens, we will bring it to you here on cnn. first this. one man was in the prime of his when an accident confined him to a wheelchair. he turned his experience into a business. >> i was playing volleyball at the beach and dove in for a swim to cool off. >> what happened next would
11:38am
change his life forever. >> there was a sand bar behind the wave and i hit my head and fractured my vertebrae. >> he spent two months with nearly fatal complications. he recovered enough to start the rehab process. the only program available for his specific needs was more than 2,000 miles away. >> shocking to think i had to go to kentucky to get the best rehab which is what everybody wants. >> he left everything behind and moved to louisville for the next year. he made good progress, but for anyone with a spinal cord injury, rehab is a lifelong process. he started asking himself, what's next? >> why don't we take what they are doing to get out of the hospital base center and take the community-based facility. >> that's what he did. immediately after returning to california, he put his business savvy and tow good use and opened next step fitness, the first rehab gym outside of a hospital setting. remember he is not just the
11:39am
president of this enterprise, but also the client. >> it was about 45 seconds to a minute that i can stand. i can walk with a walker for probably a couple hundred feet. i definitely believe there is hope for me. >> training costs a lot. up to $1600 a month. he said that's less than what his training costs elsewhere. scholarships are also available. >> the goal is to open the community-based facilities across the country to make sure that people have access. >> cnn reporting. >> make sure you watch dr. sanjay gaupt's show saturday and sunday here on cnn. we are awaiting the announcement at the white house and i want to go back to wolf blitzer. the president expects to nam nate mary joe white.
11:40am
they are previously appointed to the post during a recess appointment. that was a bit of a controversy. >> a bunch of republicans don't like this bureau agency. that's why the confirmation was held up. it was a recess appointment that president bush did too. you are limited in what you can do. this will be a full appointment assuming they go ahead and confirm him. we will see what happens in the confirmation process. he is highly respected. mary jo white in new york spent a lot of time prosecuting terrorists in new york including bombers from the wednesday. she is very tough going after a white collar criminal and others as well. i assume the reaction will be pretty favorable as far as the sec is concerned. she is being nominated to take over. you make a good point with the president bringing a woman into a sensitive and important position. here they come.
11:41am
>> over the last four years, i talked about how shared prosperity from wall street to main street depends on smart common sense regulations that protect the vast majority of americans from the irresponsible actions of a few. that's why we passed tough reforms to protect consumers in the financial system from the kinds of abuse that nearly brought the economy to its knees. today there rules to help families. responsible families buy a home or send their child to college without worrying about being tricked out of their life savings. rules to make sure financial firms are not undermined by those that don't do the right thing. there rules to end the wall street bailouts once and for all. but, it's not enough to change the law. we need cops on the beat to enforce the law. that's why today i am nominating mary jo white to lead the securities and exchange commission and richard cord ray
11:42am
to continue leading the consumer financial protection bureau. this guy is bothering me here. as a young girl, mary jo white was a big fan of the hardy boys. i was too, by the way. as an adult she built a career the hardy boys could only dream of. over a decade as a u.s. attorney in new york, she helped prosecute white collar criminals and money launderers. in the 90s, she brought down john gotti, the head of the gambino crime system and brought to justice the terrorists for bombing the world trade center and american embassies in africa. that's a pretty good run. you don't want to mess with mary jo. as one former chairman said, mary jo does not intimidate easily. that's important because she has a big job ahead of her. the sec played a in protecting our financial system in the worst of the financial crisis,
11:43am
but there is much more work to be done to cleat the task of reforming wall street and making sure that american investors are better informed and protected going forward. we need to keep going after irresponsible behavior in the financial industry so that taxpayers don't pay the price. i am confident mary jo has the experience and resolve to tackle these issues and protect the american people in a way that is smart and in a way that is fair. i want to thank elise walters who has done an outstanding job holding down the fort as chair woman. i expect the senate to confirm mary jo as soon as possible so she can get to work. my second nominee is a familiar face. a year and a half ago i nominated him to lead to give americans the information they need to make a sound financial choice and protect them from unscrupulous lenders and debt collectors. as a former attorney general with a long record of working
11:44am
with democrats and republicans on behalf of the american people, nobody questioned richards's qualifications. he was not allowed an up or down vote. i took action to appoint him on my own. richard proved to be a champion of american consumers. thanks to his leadership, we made it tougher for families to be tricked into mortgages they can't afford. responsible lenders know how to operate fairly and we launched a know before you owe campaign help them pay for college and cracked down on credit card companies and charged hidden fees to make them right and through it all, richard earned a reputation as a straight shooter and someone who is willing to bring every voice to the table in order to do what's right for consumers and the economy. now, richard's appointment runs out at the end of the year. he can't stay on the job unless
11:45am
the senate finally gives him the vote he deserves. financial institutions have plenty of lobbyists looking out for their interest. the american people need richard to stand up for them. there is no excuse for the senate to wait any longer to confirm him. i want to thank mary jo, richard and their families for agreeing to serve. i would like to invite them to say a few words starting with mary jo. >> thank you, mr. president, for the confidence you have placed in me and the faith you have shown in me by nominating me to be the next chair of the securities and exchange commission. i am deeply honored. if confirmed by the senate, i look forward to committing all of my energies to working with my fellow commissioners and the extremely dedicated and talented
11:46am
men and women of the staff of the sec to fulfill the agency's mission to protect investors and ensure the strength, efficiency and transparency of our capital markets. the sec long a vital force for the markets has a lot of long and important work ahead of it. i welcome the opportunity to lead those efforts and to build on the work of chairman mary shapiro and elise walter who i am honored is present today. finally and most importantly, i want to thank my husband john white who is here today on what is our 43rd wedding anniversary. >> today? >> today. for his strong support of me in seeking to engage in this very significant and challenging public service. thank you very much. >> thank you.
11:47am
. >> thank you, mr. president for the confidence you placed in me and the team with the financial protection bureau. we understand our mission is to stand on the side of consumers. our mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, sons and daughters and see that they are treated fairly. for more than a year, we have been focused on making consumer finance markets work better for the american people. we approach this work with open minds, open ears, and great determination. we all thank you and the congress for the opportunity and the honor to serve our country in this important way. thank you. >> i just want to thank again mary jo and richard for their willingness to serve. these are people with proven track records. they are going to look out for the american people, for american consumers, and make sure our market place works better and more transparently and more efficiently and
11:48am

11:49am
we will see if that changes in the new senate. the president is hoping that will it and we will see if they agree to do so. she may be short as you saw there and she is tough. very, very tough. you don't want to get on her bad side. if you are going to be taking over the sec as she is likely doing, assuming she is confirmed and assume she will be because she was so highly respected as a u.s. attorney in new york with a wide range of cases she was engaged in, she probably will be very, very thorough, shall we say, at the sec and big companies are going to be on notice. and individuals. don't mess with her. >> the president said she is not easily intimidated. i know you have a show in just over an hour. thank you for taking the time. see you then. thank you. >> a 15-year-old boy accused of killing his entire family in

11:52am
11:53am
take a listen to this bizarre story. five members of the family are kill and he allegedly wanted to kill more at a wal-mart and die in the shootout with police. 15-year-old shot his mother and 9-year-old brother and even his younger sister in their beds. then he hid in a closet where the father came home from the night shift at the homeless shelter and shot him to death too. listen to the reason outlined by the sheriff. >> the motive is articulated by the suspect was purely that he was frustrated with his mother. >> the boy's uncle disputes the version of what happened. >> everything, every last bit of what has been said was taken from what i would consider a coeringsed confession in the middle of the night without a lawyer and without an adult present. it has been systematically
11:54am
released by the sheriff and often inaccurately. >> michelle, you talked with investigators in the case. what did they say to you? >> they are still piecing a lot of the timeline together. what i can tell you is after those murders took place around 6:00 on saturday morning, what we know is that he did leave his house and also confirmed with the church that he went to the church for a head of time. there is surveillance of him at the cavalry church in new mexico and he contacted his 12-year-old girlfriend and she contacted her grandmother who came to the church and he spent a significant amount of time with his girlfriend throughout the day. throughout saturday, the day after the murder. at that point what i know and what i have confirmed is that the grandmother took him back to
11:55am
the church where he spent some time. he was supposed to play drums that evening in the church choir. he didn't. he did attend the service for a small portion of time and spent other time on campus. before then going to one of the pastors and confiding that his family members were dead. >> let's talk more about the family here. as i said earlier, the uncle disputes of version of what happened. relatives of this boy are struggling to understand why this happened. i want to you listen to the uncle once again. >> he has no history of crime. he has no history of involvement by family community services. he had no shooting animals or abusesing had brothers. it wasn't there. >> what have you been able to piece together about the boy and his family? >> the uncle is exactly right on those points. the sheriff's office said they have not responded to the house
11:56am
for any incidents. i did confirm with the child abuse and family services that he does not have a past criminal history. he is one of ten children. five of the children are the biological children of sarah and greg. within the house at that time, he and his brother and two sisters were living in the house. they came from a wonderful family. the father was involved in gangs. he was a past convict who turned his around and had a place in the back yard where he would bring in prisoners who would get out of jail and didn't have a place to go to help rehabilitate them. did so much with the church. the entire family. greg, the father who was murdered in this case was such a large part of that organization and really helped so many people. it's hard to tell where things went wrong. as the sheriff mentioned, the fight with mom could possibly be
11:57am
a motive. there is something deeper within the hour. i did speak with the district attorney's office in this case. here's what i can tell you. here's what he is facing. five counts of murder and child abuse resulting in murder. the grand jury will hear this within ten business days and go from there. that's where we are with this crime and this case. she innocent until proven guilty. >> 15 years old. thank you very much. >> such a tragedy. >> it certainly is.

11:59am
>> were you hurt you were not nominated. many people felt it was a snub and injustice to the work you did. i'm wondering how you felt. >> and the picture was nominated. >> it stands to reason the directionor would be nominated. >> it's gratifying the film is being appreciated and honored and the audiences are embracing. to be honest, it was only a couple of years ago that standing on the stage with the hurt locker. that might have something to do with it. >> the executive editor of "time" magazine is here in this cover story. you look at bigelow's career and look at jamie lee curtis who said this. she is not a cold woman. she's not a machine, but there is a machine-like execution to what she does. you interviewed katherine bigelow. would you agree? what was your experience of her? >> i think jamie lee curtis is talking about her at work. when i spoke to her about "the
12:00pm
hurt locker" and our editor wrote this week's cover story spoke to her, she is very elegant and gracious and she is a team player and very, very focused on the job she has to get done. she is not unlike the protagonist of zero dark 30. >> let's talk about her relationship with james cameron who has been described as intense. golden globe post amy poeler. she spent three years married to cameron. what do we know about this relationship? >> it was a short marriage. years long and a long time ago. i know that the two are still friendly and supportive of each other's work and very much in touch. >> that's it. that's all you will say about that? >> ask katherine bigelow. >> she comes across as a private
12:01pm
or shy woman compared to many of the hollywood heavy weights. tell us something we may not know about her. she lived in a bank vault in new york city. >> she has an amazing city as a visual artist. she was brought up in california and moved to new york in the 70s. she was making art and interacted with a number of pivotal figures. you see in the films that she makes that very visual quality, that special esthetics. she wants it to be memorable. anyone who has seen zero dark 30, the scene at the end of the film, you see the artist in her there. >> indeed. thank you. we appreciate you joining us. >> thank you. >> at the top of the hour, brooke is off today. the battle over gun control kicking into high gear. dianne feinstein stood near this wall of guns, flanked by police
12:02pm
officers as she unveiled a tough bill that would ban assault weapons. it would ban more than 100 specific models of firearms and weapons with detachable magazines and high capacity magazines that use more than ten rounds of ammunition. it faces staunch opposition from the nra and gun rights advocates. her parents were shot and killed at the cafeteria in texas in 1991. she regrets leaving her gun in the car and talks about how parents are reacting to the recent shooting in newtown, connecticut. >> there is a normal reaction especially among us parents. you want to do something, something that will prevent this from happening in the future. i take a very different view. i wonder how can anybody not see that these things only happen where guns are not allowed. that seems crist american league clear that we create the killing
12:03pm
zones that we call gun-free zones. it makes me uncomfortable to have my children in them. >> i want to bring in a cosponsor, connecticut senator richard blumenthal. are you doing okay? >> i am doing great. >> what would you say to try to convince her to support the proposed assault weapons ban? she lost her parents. >> she did. by way of reassurance, we are not talking about taking guns away from anyone nor any disrespect for second amendment rights. i have enormous respect for the constitution which includes the second amendment and the court's interpretation of it that provides an individual right to po tess firearms. we are talking about assault weapons. the kind of military-style ar-15s used, for example, in newtown to massacre 20 children and six educators.
12:04pm
these weapons have really no purpose except to kill and maim human beings. plus the high capacity magazines. what i have been hearing from lu enforcement and i'm a former attorney general for 20 years for the state of connecticut, u.s. attorney, federal prosecutor over many, many years. they're outgunned. the police are outgunned by criminals and people with mental illness and domestic abusers who have these assault weapons. that is all we are talking about here. >> senator, the nra as i'm sure you are well aware gearing up for a fight. the new cover reads siege. siege. that means under siege or unenthusiasts are under siege. there is an recall inside that they face assault on their rights. it said don't be fooled into thinking president obama wants to ban fully automatic guns.
12:05pm
this has nothing do to do with machine guns. the anti-has the most anti-gun president in history. senator, how are you going to fight the nra? >> the nra unfortunately is marginalizing its involvement. i regret that because we need voices on all sides including responsibility gun owners and nra members who are telling me, we need to do something about keeping guns away from people who are criminals or felons or fugitive oers domestic abusers or drug addicts who should not have the weapons. background checks will be supported by members of the nr aso that we can keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn't have them. better checks for firearms researches and also for ammunition purchases and
12:06pm
improving those background checks by making the database more complete through information that is committed by the state. i think there is the potential for real common ground here. among responsible recreational shooters as well as hunters and others who are responsible gun owners whose right to the guns is guaranteed by the second amendment. >> thank you for your time, sir. >> thank you. >> an admission, phone records and voice mails. notre dame star manti te'o lays it out and on the table when it comes to the girlfriend hoax that is smearing his image. >> my story, i felt was a guy who in times of hardship and times of trial really held strong to his faith. held strong to his family and i felt that that was my story. >> even if that hardship was
12:07pm
perhaps exaggerated? >> no. what i went through was real. the feelings and the pain and the sorrow. that was all real. >> so a runner up for the heisman trophy said this man fooled him into believing his online girlfriend who he had never met in three years died of cancer. he admitted the same thing that the woman whose image he stole and used -- listen. >> he reached out to me a day or two days before the story broke. he relayed to me that he in fact was stalking my profile for five years, taking my photos and he created this -- >> five years? >> he created this identity that was not me.
12:08pm
it was this woman with my face on it. >> te'o said he had late night calls with a woman he believed to be his girlfriend. in a new twist, a lawyer for him told the "new york daily news" said he was on the other end of the calls faking her voice. sunny hostin is on the case. let's start with the man behind the hoax and the names. my goodness. if the story wasn't confusing enough, the names! can te'o take legal action against the man who orchestrated all of this? >> he certainly can. what's fascinating to me about this and let me say i am a notre dame alum and so i have been following this case closely. he's not the first guy to have been duped by someone online. this happens often times. people are talking about catfishing. absolutely. i think he could have some sort
12:09pm
of claim against him. how about the intentional infliction of emotional distress. what was clear at least in the excerpt we showed with the interview, he said those feelings were real. that sorrow and distress. that was real. if someone intentionally puts you through something like that, absolutely you have legal recourse against them. the question is what is he going to get? we are talking about a star football player who is likely to be drafted with a big financial package. this guy, this scammer doesn't have anything. you can't get blood from a stone. i think there laws to protect people from the scam artists and from these hoaxes. often times, don, they do seek legal redress and see people suing online dating sites and married men claiming to have been single. this is not uncharted territory really. >> you have people who are liars and they believe their own lies
12:10pm
have been involved with that recently. how can you believe your own lies? >> shocking. >> te'o admits to lying, but only briefly. he stuck with the girlfriend story even after he knew it was a hoax. can we expect any action to be taken against te'o for lying? >> listen, i think in today's world where we see such carnage and athletes, some of them behaving badly, he is going to get a pass on this. he was clearly assuming that this is true that he had no knowledge of the hoax. i think the public and authorities are going to give him a pass on it. he didn't assault anyone and he didn't harm anyone and kill anyone. he was the victim of this hoax. the fact that he lied, probably from sheer embarrassment. who wants to admit they were duped like this on such a scale. i suspect nothing is going to happen to him. but a lesson well learned if
12:11pm
this is all true. >> let it be a lesson to you and everyone. >> teachable moment. >> yes. i haven't heard that one in a while. it's back. appreciate it, sunny. >> now the biggest stories in a flash. rapid fire. let's go. washington has been the scene of brutal disputes over presidential appointments, but john kerry is considered a shoe in as secretary of state. after all, he should in the club as a member of the u.s. senate that has a constitutional duty of reviewing cabinet choices. here's kerry at his confirmation hearing. >> i sat up at the disk where you all are and looked down at the witnesses and wondered what they are thinking sometimes. as we question them. i don't want this to affect your opening questions, but let me say i have never seen a more distinguished and better looking group of basketball officials in my life. >> smooth sailing so far for john kerry. florida teachers could see a jump in their paychecks soon.
12:12pm
governor rick scott says the state's first budget surplus in five years should go straight to the teachers. >> i'm asking the legislature to join me with supporting my 2013 budget request to give every full time classroom teacher a $2500 pay raise. >> the proposal would cost the state $480 million. >> talk about a close call. a baby girl survives a car crash after being tossed into on coming traffic. look at the car swerving in rush why and into the wrong lane. it slams in and the toddler goes flying out of the back of the car. that's her. as an on coming truck barely missing her. the man rushes to pick the baby up and returns her to the car. goodness.
12:13pm
>> north korea is is thea again promising nuclear tests as part of an all out action targeting the u.s. let's go. inside the military's about-face, you are about to hear from one woman who has trained for every soldier's nightmare. plus, one of golf's good guys suddenly jumps into a political debate, but phil mickelson now said he regrets his comments about taxes. and it's known as revenge porn. more people are taking action against their exes. we are on the case. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

12:18pm
-- the vehicle and arrested him and i don't show you arresting anybody. >> i never arrested nobody. >> isn't that amazing? he's a seasoned veteran and he couldn't remember four days later. >> you don't buy that? >> no, it's not true. it's not true at all. >> eight days after terrence vanished, the deputy was ordered to write a report and it's in this report a different story emerges. the deputy said he drove the 27-year-old father of 4 to a nearby circle k where he said he thought he worked. that version of events concern investigators. months earlier they heard the same story from the deputy about another missing man. 23-year-old felipe santos vanished october 13th after they responded to the scene oa minor accident involving santos. he issued a citation and put him in the back of the sheriff's
12:19pm
car. when he was questioned about felipe, an undocumented worker, he said he dropped santos off at a circle k. the sheriff's investigator, kevin o'neal. >> we have no independent cooperation of anyone saying they saw him at one of the circle ks. that is hawkins's testimony. i think we can add up where we can put his testimony at this point. >> o'neal said neither of the missing men was ever seen on circle k's security cameras and there is more. >> you have been doing this for a long time. you know when something doesn't smell right. >> you think he had anything to do with the disappearance and possible death of the two men? >> he is absolutely in the evhing i turn tingsmegation and back to steve caulk ins. >> months after they went missing, the deputy, a 16 year veteran was fired for lying in connection with the investigation of terrence williams. caulk ins has not been charged
12:20pm
with a crime because no criminal evidence was found linking caulk ins to the disappearances. in the case of terrence williams, they say the deputy's car was search and described as immaculate. caulk ins's home was never searched because according to investigators i they didn't have the evidence needed for a search warrant. we wanted to ask steve caulk ins some questions, but couldn't get past this woman. hello? >> yes. >> hi, sorry to bother you. i'm randi kay with cnn. >> no, you can get the camera out of your property. >> he's not on your property? >> bye. >> is he here? >> bye. >> caulk ins did tell a local paper he didn't do anything wrong, blaming the coincidences on very bad luck. he suggested maybe they ran away. >> if terrence was alive, terrence would have had somebody

12:28pm
ups in two minutes. she is say great example of one of the many fine women warriors we have out there. >> we know that. how should the military handle pregnancy, for example for women in combat units. should a com bad leader be able to direct a woman member not to get pregnant? >> look, i think the point here is both men and women are professionals. they care very much about the mission and they are there because they are there to serve our country. looking at someone in a deployed setting, it's not in their best interest to get pregnant overseas, but if it happens, it happens. we take care of each other. we have a highly trained and skilled and motivated force and by opening the doors to women, we will only be stronger because of the unique capabilities that women bring to the table. >> thank you very much.

of income. i'm not going to defend him on that. he highlighted something that is a real problem. it's not just rich people who are getting nickelled and dimed at the federal level and the state level and the local level. a lot of middle class people are feeling the same pinch. they might be earning $50,000 rather than $50 million, but everybody just about who gets a paycheck got a tax hike this year when the payroll tax cut expired. one thing we don't think about is local property taxes have gone up if for a lot of people because cities and states are running out of money and sales taxes and income taxes have gone up by a lot too. there is no good set of data that puts it together. we don't think about it this way, but a lot of people believe it or not are suffering for the same thing phil mickelson is explaining about. >> between prop 30 and the new federal taxes on the wealthy, here's what he said. his tax rate climbed to 63%.
12:38pm
some people say if you break it down as we do here, it's probably in the range of 52% and that's before you even factor in itemized write offs. maybe not as bad for the wealthy as mickelson first suggested. >> he is definitely not paying 63%. ha might be his starting tax rate with all kinds of various deducks and charitable giveaways and things like that. most accountants will tell you it's down to 50%. >> still a lot of money. >> he's in about the worst place he can be for paying taxes. that is to be in california. a high tax state. like tiger woods just did. that's another interesting situation we have. a growing disparity between some states that have been raising taxes and other states like texas and florida that are saying look, we have no income taxes. we raise revenue in other ways. people are starting to play
12:39pm
between states with high taxes and states with low taxes. a lot of people are leaving california and it's businesses that are leaving too. especially medium sized businesses that employ a fair number of people that are going to places like utah and idaho. this is not necessarily a great thing that we have got. companies moving around and people considering moving around. what we really need is for people to be thinking about the best ways to be productionive wherever they happen to be and not to figure out where they can go to skirt the laws. >> thank you. >> sure thing. >> coming up, the growing problem of revenge porn. say you are in a relationship that ends badly. your ex-has access to intimate foties of you. those picture may end up online posted on revenge porn websites. that story is next.

12:42pm
at the world economic forum in switzerland where the global leaders in business and government gatherer to talk big ideas. that's where ali sat down with eric kantor to discuss washington's next big political battle budget. >> when you look at the options out there, president obama's budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys say need to be done.
12:43pm
now you have a proposal that said you will balance the budget in years. i asked paul ryan this and i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> there new base lines in the budget. as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington were centered around the method of accounting whether it's static or dynamic. when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional tacks that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the base line. that is going to make the numbers look differently. right? we will have to make choices. no question about it. we have committed to putting a budget out there that will bring it to balance within years. >> the fact is nobody seems to want to own up to a budget that will hurt. >> the ryan budget, the last didn't balance in almost 30 years. the way we were trying to move
12:44pm
said look. like in most in the private sector, we want to transition from a defined benefit scenario to a defined contribution scenario. you need to affect real reforms in delivery and compensation and payment if you are going have that happen. we cannot get agreement from the white house and the democrats in congress to join us in the effort. >> you started by saying it's about growth. here at the world, everybody in the world agrees it's about growth. >> what's the thing you can do to move the ball for the and create growth? >> i think that the elections said more than anything else is the people of our country want to see a government that works. >> regardless of whether that's about taxes or cuts. >> we have got to and i hope the administration and barack obama,
12:45pm
the president, will join us and say look, it's time for us to set differences aside and do what any couple does and group of people do which is say look, you are not going to agree 100% on everything. you are not going to agree 100% on anything. find where we agree. >> when they did on that on january 1st of this year, you voted against it. we found middle ground. >> there was no middle ground. where were the cuts? >> the middle ground that you asked for no tax increases and a threshold of $1 million. >> we're said and according to the rule, we always said if we are going to raise revenues through borrowing and taxing, we have got to do something about the problem. you can't keep digging deeper and asking people to pay more taxes. >> but you did vote against the consensus agreement? >> there really wasn't. this was a last minute jam of a deal.
12:46pm
i think we could have done a lot better for the american people. we going to have a last minute jam of a deal on the debt ceiling that is going to happen in may on a continuing resolution and a budget? >> i hope we can work things out and come to an agreement that you will have to do something about the problem. it is about spending. we have to get control of the spending. >> you understand you are never going to get democrats to agree? you will find another way around coming to the solution. >> for we don't get control of the spending, then you are going to end up like europe. >> don't we go back to bowles simpson? nobody likes it. >> thedidn't solve the spending problem. back to that, the main driver are the health care entitlements. they left that out. >> can you lead and say let's do a bowles simpson? >> we are working to fix the coalition and others. let's come together. we have proponents and we are
12:47pm
looking for those who say fine, let's do something. >> you are prepared to go in with documents. we won't do this. this is what it looks like. let's talk. >> i think we have done that since barack obama was elected. >> some may disagree. >> we have papers. >> you will see let's negotiate on our suggestion and let's come to the table. here's the room. >> consistently have done that, but it's not proper or accura accurately portrayed. it is about sitting downing to and figuring out how to fix the problems. >> it will be portrayed now because it's coming out of your mouth. thanks.

>> 6% of americans, over 18 admit to sending nude pictures of themselves to someone else. that is according to a study and now today a case that will make you think twice before sending such photos. 16 women say they may be victims of revenge porn. that's when a bitter ex-of yours sends a nude photo of you to a porn site. these women filed a civil lawsuit in texas court, alleging their photos were posted illegally. drew is on the case for us.
12:51pm
cases like this are on the rise. how does the law protect people online? can they be protected. >> the first thing is the importance of thinking twice before you send these pictures even with a boyfriend or girlfriend. now what happened is the companies have been been a conduit and what they are saying is hey, conduit. send it to us and we'll put it online and you can get back at her. the lawyers are saying, our clients have agreed for their pictures to go public. the lawyers are saying, we're suing you and anybody that clicks on that site, we'll sue you also. >> like godaddy, it's almost like child porn, if you click on it you can be named in a suit? >> that's exactly right. people are being criminally prosecuted and lawyers are suing them for looking at children's
12:52pm
pictures and what these lawsuits are doing are going after the consumers as well. godaddy is going to go on no matter what. they are going to go after the wallets of the people that click on the sites that want to see the pictures of these jilted girlfriends. >> wow. do you think it will work? >> i think it will be enough to make people think twice. >> think twice before you send a picture and also if you're going to send a picture out of your ex, you should think twice because you could be prosecuted as well? >> that's exactly right. this next case is an atlanta man suing the state of georgia because they won't let him put the word gay on his license plate. he applied for gayman and gaypwr
12:53pm
and was disapproved. haters were approved but haters1 denied. >> i think it's arbitrary and clearly a violation. you're going to see an about-face. the attorney general of georgia has a sophisticated office with very bright constitution nal justice. it made it illegal to have consenting sodomy amongst a gay couple and even though that was at first affirmed by the supreme court, it later got reversed. this attorney general's office is not going to endure the embarrassment of that. >> all right. it will be over. drew findling, interesting stuff. think twice about those pictures. >> absolutely. we'll be right back.

you can bet people who own stock in apple will be glad to see the "closing bell" ring on wall street. it has been an ex accepting nally bruising day for what had been a financial jugernaut. alison, what in the world is going on? >> apple didn't sell as many i phones as wall street wanted done. people wound up buying lower price products instead of the higher priced ones.
12:57pm
they bought the iphone 4s instead of the iphone 5. that hurt apple's bottom line. apple recorded record profits. there are quality alternatives out there. it's getting crowded out there. apple is feeling the heat as we watched the stock fall almost 12.5%. the $450 stock price i don't think is anything to sneeze at, don. >> no, it's not. steve jobs welcomed apple to people are worried about apple innovation. what does it say about tim cook, if anything? >> he's getting the blame. the blame is right on his shoulders because the stock was trading around $375 a share when
12:58pm
cook took over. the price almost doubled in the first year that he was in charge and then the price peaked in september when the iphone 5 came out but the thing is, since then, the shares have been tumbling and there are two schools of thought on this. wall street and analysts say, we don't have the confidence in tim cook that he can deliver the next hippest device and shareholders don't want him to leave. this company has $137 million tucked away but i don't think you're going to see tim cook go anywhere. >> thank you, alison. we'll be right back. like mango jalapeño shrimp and parmesan crunch shrimp. just $11.99. offer ends soon! i'm ryon stewart, and i sea food differently. so i used my citi thankyou card to pick up some accessories.
